Honah Lee Timbers

Last year I visited Honah Lee Vineyards near Orange, Virginia. I did a drawing page there which was incorporated into my wine picture book, "The Earthly Paradise." This year I drew details of woodwork from inside their wine tasting cabin, while sipping wines by "guest" winemakers represented at Honah Lee. Up until now, Honah Lee has not made wines of its own but has grown plenty of grapes. But just recently they received their license to produce wine so they will be starting Honah Lee Winery. 

The square structure in the center of the drawing looks like a primitive loudspeaker or some sort of industrial device but it is just an antique grape press. Inside the cabin, "Berrywood Crafters," the owners' business, display and sell handmade jewelry as well as a good selection of locally grown produce, and baked goods.
